Tempera is a type of paint consisting of an emulsion with color pigment. Once dried, the paint is very durable. The word tempera comes from the Latin temperare, which means to mix. Tempera is thought to have been invented in Egypt in Roman times because some mummy portraits were painted with tempera. Before the invention of oil paint, tempera was widely used for painting and illuminating manuscripts. Traditionally, icons are still painted with tempera.
